Homeopathic Medicine

Homeopathic Medicine involves prescribing for a patient with symptoms of an illness, extremely small doses of the substances that produce the same symptoms in healthy people when exposed to larger quantities. A homeopathic medicine is prepared by diluting the substance in a series of steps. The homeopathic remedy will retain a “memory” of the diluted substance and the therapeutic potency of a remedy can be increased by serial dilution combined with succussion, or vigorous shaking. Many homeopathic medicines are so highly diluted that no molecules of the original substance remain after dilution. Even so, homeopathic remedies have been scientifically proven to be effective for a very wide range of health problems.
